. on a day that secretary of state hillary clinton says she is waiting for answers while the fbi investigating the killing of four americans in benghazi, libya, our sources reveal that not one fbi investigator has st stepped foot in the crime scene. the same sources say the crime scene has not been secured. and those are two deadlines, just two new pieces of information tonight. that is not all we are learning. cnn national security contributor fran townsend is joining us now. she has the scoop on all of it. as we often mention there is a the former white house security adviser and a member of the cia external advisory committee and she's in libya with her employer. and also with us is former cia officer bob baer. you have new reporting on the status of the fbi investigation. what can you tell us? >> anderson, it's pretty extraordinary and astonishing to me who's worked with the fbi over a decade. you understand when this happens and the fbi opens an investigation one of the first things they do is go to the state department and say please request permission for us to enter this
officer bob baer. you have new reporting on the status of the fbi investigation. what can you tell us? >> anderson, it's pretty extraordinary and astonishing to me who's worked with the fbi over a decade. you understand when this happens and the fbi opens an investigation one of the first things they do is go to the state department and say please request permission for us to enter this country, libya, get to the crime scene, benghazi. please request that we have the security and ability to do that and that we will have access to the crime scene and have access to any individuals that libya takes into custody. while the fbi made that request to the state department. what we found out today from senior law enforcement officials while the fbi made it to tripoli they have never made it to benghazi. >> they haven't been on the ground in benghazi? >> they have not. it was taking so long to get permission to go to tripoli, the fbi deployed their personnel to a location in the region so they would be closer. they have conducted interviews of the state department and u.s. government personnel
f.b.i. agent has been to the consulate on benghazi, because of security concerns. those are just some of the new and shocking information we have for you tonight on the rapidly evolving story. here is chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge. >> reporter: two sources tell fox news that within 24 hours of the assault on the u.s. compound in benghazi, the evidence pointed to a terrorist attack carried out by al-qaeda. the u.s. intelligence community had strong leads to indicate the affiliate in north africa, working with a second group that ceased to establish islamic state. "no one believes that mortars and the rpgs were work of mob. no one. " >> it was a terrorist attack. >> reporter: asked when he reached the conclusion the defense secretary was vague. >> day after, or -- >> it took a while to really get the feedback from what exactly happened at that location. >> reporter: in addition to c.i.a. assessment before the acta, security in libya was deteriorating. in august, a defense department report on the rise of al-qaeda in libya there was another warning about islami
the libya attack was terrorism. why wasn't hasn't the fbi gone into benghazi to investigate when even members of the media have been there? colonel tony shaffer is here to talk about benghazi next. >> is the already troubled u.s. postal service about to default for the second time? ♪ ♪ proud to and on our own ♪ proud to be homegrown ♪ a familiar face and a name you know ♪ ♪ can you hear it? ♪ fueling the american spirit ♪ no matter when, no matter where ♪ ♪ marathon will take you there ♪ fueling the american spirit security something called personal security detachment. details they can put a ring of special operations guys around these guys to help them could their job. there is absolutely no operational or technical reason to not have these guys on the ground doing the csi type stuff necessary to it try to start putting all the pieces together, frankly between you and me and your audience, i think there is larger picture here that people -- that certain folks don't want to have emerge out of this. >> what is that larger picture? is it that this is endemic and t
. "helping." f.b.i. and others are on the ground in the early stages of the investigation. top priority here? find out whether the strike on the consulate was a planned assault by terrorists rather than a rampageing mob angry other antimuslim video. catherine is in washington, dc, first on the reported arrests. >> this afternoon, the intelligence community is trying to knock down the report. this question was put to the state department. i saw the press reports before i came down. i was not able to confirm them. obviously, it would be a good thing if we are moving forward on this. >> the state department confirmed the investigation in benghazi at consulate is led by the libyan authorities with f.b.i. agents on the ground because american citizens are dead. at least publicly the state department remains cautious when it comes to assigning blame. fox is told that two groups are part of the universe of suspects in the libyan attacks affiliated with al qaeda, the affiliate in north africa. one is the lifg, the libyan islamic fighting group banned under qadaffi and the other is a group, too, that
-- spblt for three weeks later. 20 days past the september 11th attacks and fbi isn't in benghazi, they're in tripoli, for security reasons they say, they say that the libyan security forces aren't providing them with security and some sort of visa problem. this is unheard of. so, senator bob corker and joe lieberman among others, they want answers from clapper about why it's happening. >> dave: to the point at that tony schaeffer made on our program yesterday, he's worked with the fbi, some of the toughest and highly technically trained individuals on the planet. comfortable going into hostile zones like benghazi, it must not be an internal reason, it must be someone else they can't go in. >> clayton: bee seeds the tactffac tactffac fact-- besides the fact that libya is a free country and not the hot son that-- as it's unfolding and discussions about james clapper on the show this morning, who is james clapper we'll taking a look at his record. he made headlines in 2010 when asked about that london terrorist attack by diane sawyer and appeared he didn't know what had happened or unfold
heard from the fbi director and the director of counterintelligence, counterterrorism. they both basically said this problem is getting much worse than it has in the past. international terrorism and even home grown terrorism. the president ever from the very beginning is crumbling before our very eyes. i would hope that mr. romney would see this as an opportunity to come out very strongly and say, look, look at what has happened in egypt, libya, syria, iran, of course, is taking over iraq. you are having problems and saudia arabia, pakistan, afghanistan seems to be going in the wrong direction. there is not a place in that entire area where we can call terribly friendly at this point and quite frankly could explode. lou: there are a host of questions, obviously, that pertain to the days we are living through here. ambassador, very quickly, the idea that the hundred governor romney has not responded with great sharp focus, he is disappointing to many. there seems to as well be, as i brought up, with ed henry at the white house, not only has our president not addressed our america
the fbi has a team on the ground in libya to identify suspects, gather evidence and assess whether a prosecution is possible. as fox news was first to report the targeted killing of ambassador coordinated and may be linked to a group called lifg or the libyan fighting islamic group. it was banned by the former dictator muammar qaddafi because of its support for al qaeda. the head of the house intelligence committee is one of few members of congress fully briefed on the attacks and the investigation. >> even though we can't say for sure this was an al qaeda event yet it certainly fits the profile, it fits the signature, the precision, the way that they carried out this particular attack, certainly would make it likely that it is an al qaeda affiliated organization. >> reporter: this morning the libyan foreign ministry saying that they believe a group called ansar al sharia was involved. they support the extremist goal of imposing strict sharia law in that country. jenna: ongoinging investigation as we learn more about libya. what about cairo? what are we learning about the investiga
from qaddafi and i want to know who did this and i want them turned over to our fbi. it is inexcusable. in our country if an embassy was attacked we would send thousands of troops there immediately. there were warnings in egypt and they said the mob is coming. they didn't send soldiers they just said the mob is coming, get ready. it is inexcusable. >> you have also expressed doing the same with usa to pakistan if they end up arresting or worse this doctor who helped identify the whereabouts of osama bin laden which we ultimately succeeded in gunning him down. so is there something going on in the entire region that we should just go slow on pouring money good moon after bad here? >> we had something called the arab spring. i am not sure if we are better or worse off. democracy in the middle east is sometimes bringing people into power who really don't like america. we have given billions upon billions of dollars to these countries and my question is if you want to be an ally of america act like it. if you are not going to act like an ally of ours you are going to disparage us and kill
to join in the hunt for them. the fbi is also investigating. as we said at the top of the program, american warships armed with cruise missiles have begun steaming closer to libya. a marine unit is headed to tripoli to protect the embassy there and other forces may be called to beef up protection globally. >> we're working with the government of libya to secure our diplomats. i have directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world, and make no mistake, we will work with the libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people. >> well, later today after that speech, on the cbs evening news, president obama also had sharp words for mitt romney, who's come under fire from democrats and some republicans for his statements lashing out at the obama administration's response to the attacks in benghazi and cairo. statements that whatever you believe about american foreign policy are simply not factual. we'll get to the battle over that in a moment. first we do want to focus on the attacks themselves, what happened last night an
in sending fbi forces to help investigate, find out who was responsible. but i think the thing that was so striking about chris was that he would have wanted them to be brought to justice under a rule of law that reflected the transition libya has made from a truly autocratic state where justice was never guaranteed to one where you could see these people tried in a fair courtroom and sentenced. >> you knew him well. >> i knew him well. >> for how many years? >> at least 20. we go back a long way. he was a wonderful man who had a sense of the streets as well as the elites. and despite the security restrictions that limit so many diplomats, he was always willing to go out. he saw libya through all three transition phases. two years under moammar gadhafi, then the liaison ambassador. >> and he worked hard to get rid of gadhafi through these rebels? >> absolutely. and he has reached out and he really knows the streets. the libyan people. in the same way he's known in every place i've ever known him, he has been one who has really been engaged. when he looks for what role the united states sho
the fbi has spoken to him. a lot of people are trying to track him down. when cnn tried to obtain a copy of the film permit, it was temporarily removed because of public safety concerns. one thing is now clear, sam bacile, a name that surfaced early in reporting, is a fake. miguel marquez investigates. >> reporter: he is a shadowy maker of a low-budget anti-islamic film. he doesn't want to be found and as we discovered, for good reason. in 1997, he spent a year in prison for intent to manufacture methamphetamine. in 2010, he spent another year in federal prison, this time for fraud. >> these are some of the documents for sam bacile or nakoula basseley nakoula. it is clear that going through these, investigators had a hard time tracking him down as well. the guy had several addresses, many social security numbers and lots of names. court documents show he used at least 17 different names, including sam bacile, kritbagh difrait, kurt tobacco. anything having anything to do with with sam bassil is scared to death. a man that lives here says that nakoula bassi used his address to get credit
enforcement model seems to be being used here. i think that's a huge mistake, the fbi agent who briefed us was singularly unimpressive. >> reporter: fox news is first it report on 9-13 two days of the attack there was evidence suggesting insider help and reuters is now reporting that that is the central focus of the fbi investigation. guys, back to you. >> dave: thanks so much, katherine. >> to other headlines. amid chaos in the the middle east, egypt's new islamist president will be arrival in new york city for the u.n. general assembly. before the trip, mohammed morsi is saying it's town the u.s. to fix relations with the arab world and reportedly says that the u.s. needs to show respect for arab values even when it conflicts with wherein values. it's not known for sure if morsi and president obama will have a face-to-face meeting during his visit and also attending the assembly is iranian president ahmadnejad, many people are planning to protest outside of this hotel close to fox news during his time here. and a strong and decisive warning from north korea to southern neighbors threate

. three were in the car and you said a few got out as well. >> reporter: the fbi confirmed the three who'out were aprebehinded. nobody amazingly from the crowds in the street got hit. they were driving upon sidewalks. megyn: look at the size of the crowd that has come out to see this arrest take place. there was not a lot of resisting going on once they got the car. of course, the entire police chase is considered resisting arrest. once they got to the car the men seem to have been apprehended with little trouble by the police. now we'll watch the aftermath in downtown l.a. hopefully this resolves calmly without incident. the guys are going to prison like they always do when they commit bank robberies and high-speed car chases. trace, thank you. day three now of a massive teacher strike in chicago. the white house is keeping an arm length away from this fight raising questions about possible mixed messages. back when wisconsin's governor took on unions, the president rushed to defend organized labor calling it and i assault on organized labor. in chicago a different story. rahm emanuel i
